Here is part of the boundaries for the North Canterbury/Opukepuke Constituency of Canterbury Regional Council.
From a public transport perspective it includes the Waimakariri District part of Greater Christchurch, including the Main North Line corridor from Kaiapoi to Rangiora. There are only a few bus routes that operate in this constituency, mostly the Blue Line, and Redbus have a service that operates to Oxford.
Apart from passenger trains there is limited scope for expanding public transport unless the population of parts grows rapidly. Most residential development at present is occurring in the north east coastal boundary of the constituency.
